A closer look at Settled Status for EU citizens

June 2018 - EU & competition. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

Following the release of more details of the UK Government’s scheme for a streamlined application process to grant EU citizens in the UK settled status to safeguard their position following the UK’s departure from the EU, our EEA immigration solicitors here at OTS Solicitors take a look at the post-Brexit position for EU nationals and what the settled status scheme entails in more detail.

Minister Unveil How ‘Settled Status’ Applications Will Work

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

immigration Minister, Brandon Lewis has set out how the government plans to register three million EEA nationals living in the UK who will be invited to apply for Settled Status.

The Guardian reports that Mr Lewis informed peers that the online the application process for Settled Status would go live in the second half of 2018.

The immigration minister also stated that the increasing number of EU nationals being deported from the UK since the EU referendum in June 2016 was “…good news for the British public because we should be doing everything to remove foreign national offenders”.

He added that a court case this week would clarify the legality of deportation of rough sleepers who are EU nationals. We will keep you up to date with this as news breaks.

How to Carry Out a Resident Labour Market Test

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

If you have successfully acquired a UK Sponsor Licence and are looking to recruit workers from overseas in 2018, you need to understand that the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) is an imperative part of UK Sponsor Licence holder’s duties. When recruiting talent from outside the EEA, ensuring that every RLMT is correctly undertaken is a crucial step in the hiring process. Fortunately, by engaging one of London’s best immigration solicitors, you can ensure that you conduct a fully compliant RLMT. In fact, an immigration solicitor can manage the entire process on your behalf, leaving you or your HR team free to concentrate on other parts of the business.

The RLMT procedure is relatively straightforward; however, HR directors and/or employers can risk making costly mistakes if the process is not run correctly. And in the current political climate in which Theresa May’s government is dedicated to making it tougher to recruit from outside the UK, the Home Office is alive to any deviation by businesses from the RLMT rules. Failure to conduct a correct RLMT can result in immigration officials refusing to grant a Certificate of Sponsorship.

Hiring in expert consultants can help you avoid the pitfalls associated with conducting an RLMT. At OTS Solicitors, our experienced immigration lawyers can manage the entire process for you, ensuring you are compliant at every stage.

International Families – Can You Relocate After a Divorce?

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

If you want to move countries with your children after a divorce, it is not as simple as just jumping on a plane and waving goodbye to your old life. Regardless of your reasons for wanting to relocate with your children after a divorce, your ex-spouse may be able to prevent you from moving.

Custody battles involving relocation after divorce can be emotionally and financially catastrophic, which is why you must instruct the best family solicitors in London. Just ask former Gossip Girl star, Kelly Rutherford, who declared bankruptcy following a six-year custody battle with her German ex-husband, Daniel Giersch. In a widely reported decision in 2012, a Californian judge ruled that Rutherford and Giersch should retain their 50/50 arrangement over their two children, but because Giersch was forbidden to enter the United States, the children must remain living in Monaco and attend school there. Rutherford launched a series of legal appeals; each one was denied.

Oscar-winner Halle Berry also fought a bitter battle of relocation with her ex-partner, Gabriel Aubry, with whom she has a daughter. After the couple separated, Berry met her new (and subsequently ex) husband, French actor Olivier Martinez. She wished to move to France with her daughter, a move that was fought by Aubry on the grounds it would interfere with their joint-custody arrangement. In 2012, a judge denied Berry’s request to relocate.

We deal with many cases involving international families, where one party wishes to move back to their home country following a relationship breakdown. And fortunately, most cases are dealt with calmly and respectfully, with the best interests of the children at the forefront of any decisions made.

Government Doubles the Number of Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Visas

OTS Solicitors Succeed In Helping An EEA National And Her Daughter Obtain Permanent Residence Cards

By Oshin Shahiean, of OTS Solicitors

Oshin Shahiean is a founding partner at OTS Solicitors. He has years of experience in Immigration law and has handled hundreds of applications from EEA nationals for permanent residence Cards. Oshin is also regularly called on to provide expert opinion on television and print media, both in the UK and internationally.

OTS Solicitors is a Legal 500 recommended law firm, and we have won numerous other awards for our immigration services (including a Global Excellence Award for the Most Trusted in Immigration law). My team and I regularly advise and represent EEA nationals who are facing difficulties obtaining an EU permanent residence Card.

The decision by the UK to leave the European Union has left many EEA nationals who live and work in the UK feeling incredibly vulnerable. Eight months after Article 50 was triggered, a move that officially notified the EU that the UK would exit, the rights of EEA citizens residing in the UK is still yet to be formalised.

The Home Office has also admitted it is struggling to recruit the staff required to process the surge in applications received over the past eighteen months from EEA nationals for EU permanent residenceCards.

Domestic Violence Victims Can Appeal An Immigration Decision

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

The High Court has held that victims of domestic violence can appeal on human rights grounds if their application for Indefinite Leave to Remain is refused.

This decision is incredibly empowering for victims of domestic violence who are fighting to remain in the UK after divorcing the perpetrator of the abuse, and that person is the sponsor of their UK spouse visa. London immigration Solicitors have expressed their relief that the courts have not shut down the options for domestic violence victims, many of whom would fact ostracism and further abuse if they were made to return to their home country.

Extension for Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Swiftly Granted Thanks To OTS Solicitors

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

Our team has an intrinsic understanding of the aspirations of those who come to the UK via the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa route. This is because we have dealt with so many extensive applications and have taken the time to listen to our clients’ stories. For most applicants, the ability to settle in the UK is of utmost importance.

OTS Solicitors is a Legal 500 recommended law firm based in London. We have won numerous other awards for our immigration service, including a Global Excellence Award for the Most Trusted in Immigration Law. My team and I regularly support Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa applicants to obtain their visa, an extension and ultimately, Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Record Number of Tier 1 Investor Visas Granted In the Third Quarter of 2017

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

According to figures released by the Office of National Statistics, 114 UK Tier 1 Investor Visas were granted in the third quarter of this year, up from 85 in Q2; an increase of 34% on the quarter and up 247% since the same period last year.

Our international Immigration consultants were involved in a significant number of these successful applications.

This indicates that despite initial fears of Brexit hurting the UK economy, investors from Russia and China continue to see Britain as a prime country to relocate to.

Overseas investor confidence in the UK has been further confirmed with news a US-based life sciences investment fund is planning to invest up to $1 billion to create a large biotech company in the UK. In addition, Facebook has announced it is planning to create 800 jobs in London over the next year, showing it is confident in the long-term growth prospects of the UK. Finally, two large pharmaceutical companies have stated they plan to invest more than £1 billion into research hubs in London and Manchester, creating over 1,000 new positions.

What If Meghan Markle Cannot Get ILR or British Citizenship?

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

Like everyone across the country, the London-based immigration lawyers OTS Solicitors are delighted at the news that Price Harry is engaged to American actress Meghan Markle, best known for her role in Suits and her humanitarian work. Ms Markle has announced she will become a British Citizen, and just to assure us that the same rules apply to the Royal Family as to ‘normal folk’, she will be “working towards obtaining citizenship” over the next months/years.

As she is from America, Ms Markle would not have required a visa to spend time with Prince Harry while they were dating. This is because citizens from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, parts of the Caribbean, the United States and large parts of South America can come to the UK for up to six months without a visa.

Now that Ms Markle has made moved to the UK permanently it is likely Ms Markle is in the UK on a Fiancée Visa. Once she is married, it is likely she will switch to a UK spouse visa. And, as has been pointed out in many UK papers, fortunately, Ms Markle will not need to worry about Prince Harry not being about to meet the Minimum Income Requirement of £18,600 (he is estimated to be worth around £25 million). The adequate accommodation requirement will also be unproblematic – the couple plan to reside in Nottingham Cottage, located in the grounds of Kensington Palace.

What happens next, the application for Indefinite Leave to Remain and British Citizenship can be tricky; although probably not for Ms Markle. It is likely that palace staff have looked into the bride-to-be’s background, making sure no embarrassing skeletons appear from her closet that could prevent her obtaining British Citizenship. Examples could include having a criminal record or having broken British immigration rules in the past.

However, just for argument’s sake, let’s imagine what would happen if Ms Markel was turned down for Indefinite Leave to Remain or British Citizenship.

Changes To The Immigration Rules Coming Into Effect From 11th January 2018

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

The UK government has recently announced significant changes to the immigration rules, which will start coming into effect from 11th January 2018.

OTS Solicitors is highly recommended in the Legal 500 for immigration and human rights law. We have also been selected by the 2017 Global Excellence Awards as the Most Trusted in Immigration Law: UK. We provide the best legal advice to businesses and individuals throughout the UK, South East Asia, Russia and the Middle East.

In an explanatory note, the Home Office states the purpose of the imminent changes includes:

  • clarifying rules for Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa applicants
  • allowing for electronic entry clearance issuing
  • allowing standard and marriage/civil partnership visit visa holders to transit using the same visa
  • eliminating inconsistencies relating to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for applicants and their dependents in work visa categories such as Tier 2
  • increasing the number of Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa issued to 2,000 per annum and provide for accelerated settlement for certain applicants
  • developing new Tier 2 provisions for research positions and for students switching from a Tier 4 Visa

Brexit Negotiations Update – EU Citizen’s Rights Almost Finalised

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

“Roy Moore’s stunning defeat reveals red line for Trump-style politics.” This headline and others like it in today’s papers show that thankfully common decency often prevails over hate. What a contrast to 2016 when Brexit and Donald Trump rode to power on the back of xenophobia.

This year, we have seen far-right politicians soundly defeated in France and the Netherlands; however, their gains in the German and Austrian elections show that the world is not out of the woods yet when it comes to far-right populism gaining ground politically.

And last week saw Brexit negotiations finally show some semblance of logic (although Brexit Minister, David Davis, managed to screw things up this week spectacularly, but more on that later).

Applying for a Certificate of Sponsorship

February 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

As the New Year looms, many business owners will be thinking about their staffing levels and how to ensure they have the talent needed to meet their 2018 business objectives. If you already have a Tier 2 or 5 Sponsor Licence, this article will tell you all you need to know about applying for and issuing Certificates of Sponsorship (CoS).

Given the responsibilities entailed with having a Sponsor Licence, it should come as no surprise that applying for and issuing a CoS requires adherence to several compliance policies and procedures. At OTS Solicitors, our London-based immigration solicitors can manage the process of obtaining CoS on your behalf, giving you confidence that your organisation is fully compliant with Home Office rules, and your Sponsor Licence will maintain its A-rating.

OTS Solicitors' Managing Partner Oshin Shahiean Obtains Bail For Client Pending Judicial Review

January 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

OTS Solicitors is a Legal 500 recommended law firm and has won numerous other awards for our immigration service (including a Global Excellence Award for the Most Trusted in Immigration law). My team and I regularly advise and represent EEA and non-EEA migrants who are in detention or facing deporatation.

immigration bail is a vital lifeline for migrants being held in detention. The UK government has repeatedly been criticised for detaining migrants too frequently and for too long.

According to a report by the BBC in March, four men were found to be held for two years at Brook House Immigratio Detention Centre. Prison inspectors discovered the average period of stay at the facility near Gatwick Airport had risen from 28 to 48 days.

Twenty-three people were held for more than a year.

The increasing length of immigration detentions has been blamed on delays in decision-making.

Woman Who Has Lived In UK For 50 Years Facing Deportation

January 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

Paulette Wilson has lived in the UK since she was ten.  Now 61 years old, the UK Home Office is threatening to deport her back to Jamaica, where she has nothing and knows no one. 

In October, Ms Wilson spent a week in Yarl’s Wood detention centre before being sent to the immigration removal centre at Heathrow, the last stop before detainees are flown out of the country.  The only thing that saved her from this fate is the last-minute intervention by her local MP and a charity.  She has now been allowed to go back home but must report to the Home Office in early December, still faces removal and her benefits have not been reinstated.

How could this happen?  Has the Secretary of State lost all sense of perspective and, quite frankly, common decency?  And what steps can a person in Ms Wilson’s position take to fight deportation?

The Silent Plight of Female Migrants

January 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

Women have dominated the news in the last few weeks, unfortunately for all the wrong reasons.  From the Harvey Weinstein scandal to Dustin Hoffman and the shock resignation of Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon, the sexual abuse and harassment of women has once again been brought to the forefront of our consciences.  Undoubtedly, as the weeks go on, and more women gain the courage to come forward, the inappropriate behaviour of many more high-profile executives and politicians on both sides of the Atlantic will be exposed.

But there is another group of women who will never get the chance to tell their story.  Female migrants.  Most have endured years of abuse, forced prostitution and rape in their home country.  Many risk it all, fleeing into the grasp of unscrupulous human traffickers, who abuse them even further.  And when they finally reach the UK, hoping to gain safety and the prospect of a normal life, many are treated as criminals, locked in detention centres, frightened, bereft of hope and often suicidal.

Why do we criminalise migrant woman?  Following our Legal 500 recommendation for Human Rights law, we believe this issue needs to be talked about.  Although migrant women do not have fame, fortune or connections, their plight and courage are just as worthy of being heard as any actress or political journalist.

Arrests in Saudi Arabia are “Just The Start” Of An Anti-Corruption Drive

OTS Solicitors Help Client Gain Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Without Having To Attend A Home Office Inte

January 2018 - Immigration. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

A Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa is one of the most difficult to obtain. Not only do applicants have to have access to the required funds of £50,000 or £200,000, but they also need to pass the Genuine Entrepreneur Test.

In 2015, the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) released a report that stated the Tier 1Entrepreneur visa needed to be reviewed. One of the main reasons cited was that some migrants were using the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa route to avoid the £2 million required to obtain a Tier 1Investor Visa, which could lead to an accelerated settlement. They achieved this by investing in a small equity stake of an established company but did not actively participate in running the organisation.

Help is at Hand – Domestic Violence and Immigration

Imagine you are a young woman coming to the UK to live with your new husband. You met in your home country, fell in love and decided to marry. He is a British citizen, wealthy enough to afford to meet the UK spouse visa minimum income requirement so as to sponsor you to come to Britain. He also has a large, extended family who you hope will offer you stability and a warm welcome.

However, shortly upon entering the country, your dream of a safe, prosperous marriage turns into a nightmare. Not only do you suffer beatings and abuse from your husband, but you are also abused by your extended family, with whom you may live with.

You want to leave, but where do you go? You have no money of your own. People on a UK spouse visa cannot access public funds. Your partner has taken your passport, and you are effectively destitute. To add to your stress and anxiety, you have just found out you are pregnant and now fear for the safety of your child.

This type of situation is the sad, frightening reality for hundreds of women from all different faiths, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds who are in the UK on a spouse visa. Fortunately, domestic violence rules allow men and women who are in the UK on a spouse visa to break free from their abusive relationship and still retain Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Home Office Provides New Guidance on Surinder Singh Route

More articles by this firm.

The Surinder Singh route has long offered hope to married couples who cannot meet the draconian UK Spousal Visa requirements. It has also caused no end of frustration to the Home Office, who have tried to make it more difficult for those settled in the UK to bring over spouses from abroad.

On 27th October 2017, the Government released new guidance on the decision-making steps caseworkers need to consider when processing Surinder Singh applications. As one of the best immigration lawyers in London, we have examined these carefully.

We shall go through the details of the new guidance in due course, but first, it is useful to reiterate what the Surinder Singh route is and how it works.

What Happens To Your Children When You Divorce?

January 2018 - Litigation & Dispute Resolution. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

When a couple decide to end their marriage, the two most pressing questions are:

  1. How will we divide our finances; and
  2. What will happen to the children?

Thankfully, the family law system in the UK is designed to support couples make arrangements for their children following the breakdown of a marriage.  However, disputes can arise, sometimes years after the decree absolute has been granted.

One of the most important things a parent can do if a dispute surrounding child arrangements arises is to seek the best advice from an experienced family solicitor in London.  By doing so, you greatly reduce the chance of having to go to court to obtain a Child Arrangement Order, a process which can be very stressful and cause further animosity between you and your spouse.

When the court makes a decision on the upbringing of a child, it is a fundamental principle of English law that the child’s welfare is the paramount consideration.  Therefore, when negotiating arrangements for your children or attending mediation if a dispute develops, couples should ensure the interests of their children are put first at all times.  It goes without saying that most parents do this naturally; however, the process of going through a divorce can be so emotionally charged, sometimes it is best to have an objective professional to assist you to regain perspective if you feel sentiments are spiralling out of control.

Short Marriage – Reduced Financial Settlement?

Sharp v Sharp [2017] EWCA Civ 408

Short marriages that end in divorce can result in many questions involving the financial settlement.  If a couple has only been married a short period of time (five years or less), should there be an expectation that the presumption of equal division of assets and property applies?  In the Court of Appeal case of Sharp v Sharp [2017] EWCA Civ 408, it was ruled that marital assets should not be evenly split in such a scenario.

Securing International Talent – How Global Recruiters Can Secure Highly-Skilled Non-EEA Employees

January 2018 - Employment. Legal Developments by OTS Solicitors.

More articles by this firm.

OTS Solicitors is highly recommended in the Legal 500 for immigration and human rights law.  We have also been selected by the 2017 Global Excellence Awards as the Most Trusted in Immigration Law: UK.  We provide the best legal advice to businesses and individuals throughout the UK, South East Asia, Russia and the Middle East.

The UK is the fifth largest economy in the world and operates on a truly international scale.  Many industries are reliant on securing and maintaining international talent to grow their business and meet customer demands.  According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the main sectors which hired non-EEA staff in 2016 were:

  • Transport and communication
  • Banking and finance
  • Public administration, education, and health
  • Wholesale and retail trade (including hospitality)

In addition, a majority of non-EEA workers employed by UK companies were in the high or upper-middle group of skill-by-occupation and they earned a high level of gross hourly pay.

International recruiters need to be alive to the issues surrounding recruiting non-EEA workers for companies inside the UK.  One of the best ways to keep up to date is to work with an experienced immigration solicitor.  The British government has been focused on reducing the number of foreign workers entering the UK over the past five years, to the point of introducing policies to deliberately discourage employers from hiring outside the EEA (and this will soon extend to outside Britain once the country formally leaves the EU, if recent trends are anything to go by).  Examples of this include introducing the immigration Skills Charge of £1,000 per non-EEA worker per year and insisting a Tier 2 migrant has a minimum salary of £35,000 before being permitted to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain after five years in the UK.  This can leave global recruiters feeling like there are simply too many hurdles to overcome to place a non-EEA national into a UK-based position, even if they are the best candidate for the job.  However, by working with an immigration lawyer, you can quickly understand the best practices for ensuring the organisation looking for the candidate is set up to employ the best person, regardless of their nationality.
